I rejoiced

Psalm 121

  • Refrain:
    I rejoiced, I rejoiced
    when I heard them say,
    "Let us go to God's house,
    let us go to God's house."
  1. And now our feet are standing
    within your gates, O Jerusalem.
  2. It is there the tribes go up,
    all your people, to your temple, Lord.
  3. Peace with you, peace forever,
    the peace of God for evermore.
